Muffins of Win

November 24, 2010

No photo of these guys because they didn’t last long enough.  🙂

As usual, this was a heavily modded version of an Allrecipes recipe.  Here’s what I did:

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 1/2 c. white flour
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour*
  • 1 1/4 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. yogurt**
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 handful slivered almonds
  • 2 handfuls dried cranberries

*  You can probably go as high as half and half for your whole-wheat-to-white ratio, but muffins are delicate creatures, so I didn’t risk it on the first try.

**  The kind with fat in it, not strawberry flavor.

Anyway.  Preheat the oven to 350º.  Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.  In  a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugar.  Add the eggs to that, mix well, then add the yogurt, mix, then the dry ingredients, mix.  Stir in the cranberries and almonds last, by hand.  Drop into muffin pans and bake 25-30 minutes.  Try tapping the tops with your finger (it won’t burn you) and take them out when they don’t feel liquid inside anymore.

These are best served right out of the oven with immodest amounts of butter.
